6 SteemBasicIncome Shares
15% of author rewards of next weeks zapfic post
What is #zapfic? Well I was the first to use the hashtag, so I guess I invented it, and I get to decide what it means.
#zapfic is a very short story written in less than 240 characters*.
Use a word/character counter like this free one (https://wordcounter.net/) to check your character count!

9 tales of MURDER from some of your favourite STEEM writers!
Check out the trailer for the book!
I have a story in it called The Still Blood-Soaked Path
A YouTube documentary film-maker visits a remote island to investigate the horrific murder of a young woman, and the subsequent suicide of her killer almost thirty years ago. But was the young lover really responsible for the brutal slaying of his girlfriend? And if not who was?
I had a comment left on one of my freewrites and I have to say, it made my day!
“Hey I got the book and want to tell you how much I enjoyed your story! Loved the twist at the end… you somehow nearly always manage to produce an unexpected twist... Love the care you take with your characters, intertwining them.” @owasco
Voices In The Darkness is now ALSO available as a paperback!
If you want a taster of what is in the book, the video below shows me reading the first 900 words, or so, of my story, The Tell-Tale Dead
